Wolves Given Edge by Virtue of
Overwhelming Victory in
Western Conference.
Fifteen colleges and universities,
including most of the best swim-
ming talent in the entire United
States, have entered the eighth an-
nual Intercollegiate Athletic Asso-
ciation swimming meet that will be
held at the Lake Shore Athletic
Club at Chicago, this Friday and'
Saturday, under the auspices of
Northwestern University.
With the entries closing today it
seems probable that these 15 teams
will, be the only ones to take part
in the meet, although there is the
possibility that three or four other
.eastern contingents may send one
or two men who are outstanding in
their events to take part.
The schools that have entered
teams in the championships are
Michigan, Princeton, Iowa, Rutgers,
Minnesota, Fordham, Chicago, Pur-
due, Georgia Tech, Washburne Col-
lege, Southern California, Loyola of
Chicago, Y. M. C. A. College of
Springfield, Mass., Northwestern,
and Stanford. Amherst, Brown,
Navy, and Pennsylvania are expect-
ed to enter at least one man.
Stars Will Stay For A. A. U.
Many of the stars swimming in
the Intercollegiate championships
will plan to remain over for an-
other week in Chicago, when they
will take part in the A. A. U. cham-
Coach Matt Mann's squad of ten
Wolverines is expected to take top
honors in the National meet, by
virtue of its overwhelming victory
in the Western Conference meet at
Ann Arbor, March 13 and 14. Al-
though there are some other strong
teams in the country, the Maize
and Blue natators are expected to
take enough seconds and thirds, in
addition to what first places it may
gain, to place it ahead of any other
team. Its closest competitors will
likely be Princeton, Rutgers, and
Southern California, each of which
is being picked to give the Wolver-
ines a hard race for the title.
Finals on Saturday.
Trials in the fancy diving and.
50 yard free style events will be
held on Friday afternoon. All other
preliminaries are scheduled to be
staged Friday night, while finals in

Royston Has Record
as Putting Wizard
in Conference Golf
By Bud Jones.
(Editor's Note: This is the sec-
ond of a series of articles dealing
with the members of the varsity
golf team.)
Starting his third year as a mem-
ber of the Michigan Varsity golf
team, Captain Joseph Royston, of
Pittsburgh, Pa., holds one of the
most impressive records for con-
sistency of any man who has ever
worn the colors of the Maize and
Blue on the greens and fairways.
Many conference opponents will
testify to the fact that the wizard-
ry of his putting touch is far tooj
much to cope with, since none have
ever been able to take his meas- f
Royston put in a strenuous sum-
mer of tournament play in meets
in and around Pittsburgh with vary-
ing success. Immediately after the
start of the summer vacation, Joe'
packed his mashie and niblic, and
headed for the National Intercol-
legiate tournament, but fell a vic-
tim to the sandy wastes of the Oak-
mont Country Club, failing to meet
the exacting qualifying test by a
single stroke.
In the Shannopin Open, one of
the biggest tournaments in . the
Pittsburg district, the Michigan{
leader sailed through a fast field
to capture the crown.
One of the few defeats he has I
ever suffered was in the tourna-1
ment at his home course, the High- 1
lands Country Club, where after
advancing to the final round he was
forced toconcede defeat on the
thirty-sixth green, one up, and to
content himself with the runner-
up honors.
Although few golfers will ever ad-
mit that their game on any single

McGill Captures Nine
Titles in Same Season
MONTREAL, Mar. 23.-(IP)-Mc-
Gill University athletes of Montre-
al shattered a record recently by
winning their ninth intercollegiate
title of the current season. Me-
Gill's teams hold the title in ten-
nis, golf, soccer, track and field,
hockey, basketball, swimming, Eng-
lish rugby and gymnastic competi-
tions. This is the first time a col-
lege has won more than eight ti-
tles in a season and McGill water-
poloists still have a chance to cop
that trophy, which will bring the
mark up to 10.

Al Simmons Demands
$100,000 for 3 Years

Al Simmons,

Friends claim he will quit the game
if this contract is not granted.
Crack Outfielder Holds out for
$100,000 for Three Years.
Press reports received here today
from Fort Myers, Fla., where the
Philadelphia Athletics have their
spring training base, state that Al
Simmons, outfielder, wants a three-
year contract calling for a total of
$100,000, or else he will not play
with the world's champions. Sim-
mons is at Hot Springs, Ark.
"I have not received any com-
munication from Simmons demand-
ing $100,000 for the next three
years," Connie Mack is quoted as
saying. "I won't know what he
wants until I see him in Philadel-
phia in April."
Simmons is said to have told
friends in Milwaukee that unless
he received this sum he would not
play again.

had been settled.
Toronto led the scoring chase by
adding a 9 to 6 victory over Ottawa
Saturday which set up the season
record for goals in ono gine,to a
previous 8-2 triumph over Chi-
American Race Closer.
In general the final standing
showed a closer race in the Amer-1
ican division and an open campaign
in the Canadian, with no threats to
the records of last year, except in
losing games.
The Philadelphia Quakers touch-!

Montreal Canadiens to a 4-4 tie.
They won four games and tied four,

previous record holders, the Pitts-

Boston ended another triumphant
campaign Saturday by beating the

CHICAGO, Mar. 23-(/P)-A move
to raise the standard of the golf
professional has been started in
earnest by the United States Pro-
fessional Golfers' Assocation.
Under the plans, approved by the
United States Golf Association
heads, the P. G. A will recommend
professionals to all clubs and insist
that each pro serve a three-year
apprenticeship in a shop, learning
the art of club making and then

member of good standing for two

the names of several veterans who
have failed to show, after many,
yea 1 of service, that their work on
the baseball diamond has slowed
them up to any appreciable extent.
One of the most outstanding of
these veterans who apparently nev-
er grow old is Joseph Ignatius
Judge, who has paraded around the
first base cushion for the Washing-
ton Senators years longer than
many present day fans can remem-
ber. With Walter Johnson, Sam
Rice, and Ed Gharrity, he rounds
out a quartet of players from the
old school who still retain places on
the Senators' payroll, a 1 t h o u g h
Johnson and Gharrity are not ac-
tive in big league competition any
One of Eest Liked Players.
One of the best loved of this
quartet is Judge. Always a strong
hitter, if not of the slugging type,,
he has attracted nearly as much
attention for his excellent fielding
record, his base stealing ability, and
calmness under the most trying cir-
cumstances that arise during the
course of a game.
As t-amo captain, Judge has led
the club to many victories in the
baseball wars, and at the present
time it appears that the veteran
first sacker will be the field boss
this season of a club that may make
a determined bid to oust the Phila-
delphia Athletics from the top rung
of the junior circuit ladder.
Washington finished second in
the American League race last year,
with the veteran Judge playing no
small part in their rapid rise to a
strong berth in the first division.
During the summer months, when
the hot weather causes many vet-
erans who have not been serving as
long as Judge to drop out of work
day in and day out, it was deemed
the wise thing to purchase a high
priced minor league star for re-
placement service when Judge wav-,
Kuhel Intended as Understudy.
Consequently Joe Kuhel, a mighty
slugger with Kansas. City in the
American Association, was secured
with the idea that he would share
the first base assignment with the
veteran Senator. Kuhel got little
chance, however, to show his wares.
Judge was having a particularly
good season, and, despite his many
years in active service, he still had
enough stuff to keep a young and
powerful slugger like the Kansas

City star on the bench.
Furthermore, Judge gives no im-
pression of being done even now.
He has definitely won the right to
start the season at first base for
the Senators, and if our guess is
anywhere near right judging from
his performances in recent years,
any newcomer will have a hard
time to oust the veteran Joe Judge
from Walter Johnson's regular line-

Canadien Beats Out Goodfellow,
Detroit Center, by One
Point Margin.
Howie Morenz, speedy center ice
man of the Montreal Canadiens, by
amassing a total of 49 points, won,
his second individual hockey scor-
ing championship in the National
League in four years, final compila-
tions of the records for the 1930-31
season show. Morenz closed the
season only one point ahead of Eb-
bie Goodfellow, center of the De-
troit Falcons.
In 1927-28 Morenz was also the
National League scoring champion,
but in 1928-29 he fell to third place.
Last season he had to be content
with seventh place, but that record
was remarkable in that he was kept
out of practically half of the Cana-
diens' games by injuries.
Shore Has Most Penalties.
Looking at the other extreme, we
find Harvey Rockburn, defense man
of the Detroit Falcons displacing
Eddie Shore of Boston as the
league's bad boy, serving 118 min-
utes in the penalty box throughout
the year. Shore was second in pen-
alties with 105 minutes, with Coul-
son of Philadelphia third and
Shields of the same club a close
Bill Cook of the Rangers and
Charley Conacher of Toronto fin-
,shed in a tie for third place in in-
dividual scoring with a total of 42
points apiece. Conacher led the
league in snaring goals, with 31 to
his credit, while Primeau of Tor-
onto led in assists, also with 31.
Primeau finished fifth in scoring.
Caged 28 Goals.
A comparison of the records of
Morenz and Goodfellow shows that
the Canadiens' star caged 28 goals
and 21 assists to gain his total of
49 points. Goodfellow sent 25 pucks
whistling into the net, and assisted
in the scoring of 23 other goals.
The leaders for each team in the
league were as follows: Morenz,
I Canadiens, 49; Goodfellow, Detroit,
48; W. Cook, Rangers, 42; Conacher,
Toronto, 42; Stewart, Maroons, 39;
Weilanci, Boston, 37; Gottselig, Chi-
cago, 31; Gagne, Ottawa, 29; Low-
rey, Philadelphia, 27; and Himes,
Americans, 24. Lowrey is the broth-
